William Holt and Rickey Winn II now face theft charges.

Sheriff deputies say the men used a propane torch to cut the rail into smaller sections last summer, then hauled them off on a trailer.

Investigators say the rails belonged to P and L railways but weren't being used at the time they were stolen.
